    Empty words from a Karl Rove puppet with Bush handlers crawling all over the place. Sad Obama did the same thing he got all of Clintons old gang all over the place in his administration. Thats the reason this country will never get anywhere. On both sides too many political butt buddies still running the country. These guys just switchout every four or eight years.Romney has big money. Obama has big money. The american people has no money and the Federal Reserve made a profit of 77 billion . How did they pull that off the country is broke but turning a profit do the citizens get any of that money? Why did CNN report that on the bottom line and not a headline?

    Mitt the used car salesman spending money like he owns a mint just to get a republican nomination what will he have left in the tank to fight the real fight.Cnn the bald guy on your network is trying to plant seeds to discourage democrats in November making statements like they will be low democrat turnout in november. He must be god and know that democrats wont turnout or he has the platform of 24 hour news cycle and spread his message to influence low voter turnout.I dont need to watch a guy who clearly has a agenda to make democrat voter turnout low.

    Romney wont kiss a baby at his own rally. I just sat here and watched him past the baby to his wife and got the baby back took a picture no kiss on the baby cheek nothing. I mean you have to be a politican before you can be a president. Mitt is a business man not a politican. Business men play by their own rules

    "It seems Romney is the next President of the United States after the failure of Obama administration on mnay domestic issues."
    Romney's nomination has never been in doubt as the fat cats pony-up the money at about 8 times the rate as the other candidates. Even with an endless parade of negative TV ads Romney can't develop a sincere following of people who are energized by this liberal/moderate/conservative/or-anything-you-want politician. Americans with brains realize that it was the Republicans who dug the hole we're in and then obstructed all efforts to climb out. They operated a cut & spend economy with two wars not even on the books. They were in bed with the financial district and Bush issued the first bailout package. The President took office with over 8 million jobs already lost and America headed toward an unprecedented economic depression if we didn't get the economy moving. We did and the recovery is now moving along nicely. I might also mention the terrorists the Republican administration were trying to catch did pretty well until President Obama took the reins. Bin Laden is fish food now thanks to an intelligent application of American defense capabilities. No... Romney won't be President and you'll be writing these negative comments for four more years.

    Well I wouldn't want a stranger kissing my baby even if it is a Presidential candidate! I don't think any of the GOP can beat Obama. I wish Ron Paul would get a chance to reform government. The Federal Reserve needs auditing at least!

    Thank goodness. Maybe this will be the final straw for Santorum and he'll take the hint.

    Yes, Romney wins and touts his business background. Obviously, Romney is very much out of touch. His relationship with big business is a baggage he does not understand. Americans resent big business. They have suffered in their hands. They do not want someone who would support business, with all its greed, corruption, deception, etc, against their interest. The last thing they want is more big business influence at the Whitehouse. Reagan, Clinton and other great presidents were not head-deep in business. Business conjures a strong, bad image. We don't need major decisions, including war and social responsibilities of govt, made on Wall Street and handed to a president Romney. That is the danger of Romney's presidency.

    It's great to know that doing service for ones country is only based on economic acquisitions !

    What happened to politicians that did civic duty other then making leverage buyouts ?

    Not one of the Romney's did any military service..

    He actually had the cojones to ask whether we want a president who can fix the economy (i.e., the flip flopper will fix the economy for other countries as he continues to fire American workers in favor of people in India) instead of one with personality.
    Poor $250M man. He can't even remember that if there is one person without a hint of personality it's him. Those trees are the right height, the family dog riding on top of a car, singing to the masses (now he just speaks), corporations are people, I like to fire people, not having $1 to return to a child because his wallet was full of $100 bills.
